Buddy of mine works there and heard WLB is good and culture is awesome - beers and game room in office. Not that that matters in the WFH world we’re in now. But beware - furniture and home design is generally one of the hardest hit industries during a recession

Don’t do it! Everyone I know who has worked at wayfair leaves after a year or 2 because they pay way below industry average.

Also if you want to live in any good areas in Boston (near Wayfair office), COL is very comparable to NYC. PM me if you want more details! I know a ton of people who worked at Wayfair at some point.

What does owning a P&L mean to you, because when I have that responsibility it means way more stress which should equal more pay.

My wife used to work next to the wayfair building and we lived in Coolidge Corner, right out of college. Just wanted to recommend Brookline MA if you take the job.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
